" "To face one year in prison for putting too many pepperonis on a pizza? Everybody laughs and smiles, but that's the reality of the way it's written now," said Chris Reisch, who worked his way up from delivering pizza to owning 10 Domino's franchises in Lexington, Ky. Reisch said the regulation is hurting franchise owners, who are too scared to hire under the rule's requirements. "Here's the government stepping in again and throwing another hurdle your way," he said. "Already small business owners are scrambling, they're spending dollars, they're buying new menus, they're trying to figure out what's the plan. Everybody's pulling their hair out trying to make this May 5 deadline." "It's difficult to hire right now," Reisch said. "I'm friends with franchisees and in every part of the country, we're having problems hiring people." Doug Kantor, a partner at Steptoe and Johnson and counsel to the National Association of Convenience Stores, a trade group that represents 2,100 retailers, said the rule is just as difficult for small convenience stores.

Donald Trump’s presidency has been good for business, with a soaring stock market, a freeze on new regulations and an Oval Office that appears to have an open door for CEOs. But Trump has been especially good news for the industries in which he has a personal interest: real estate, construction, entertainment, hospitality, gambling and, of course, golf. Since taking office in January, Trump has made moves — from rolling back water quality permits to signaling big changes on overtime pay and internet betting — that benefit the fields he knows best. And his former peerspartners and competitors alike — are finding familiar faces in Trump’s White House and Cabinet agencies, who have the power to make even more of their wish lists come true. High on Trump’s list of early executive orders was one signed in February that begins reversing an Obama-era rule that gave federal protection to rivers, streams and wetlands — a big win for golf course owners and superintendents who say the rule forced more paperwork and made them unfairly susceptible to environmental fines.

The big snowstorm in the U.S. Midwest and East last week was a respite for some small-business owners whose revenue took a hit from the generally mild winter and who now are rethinking their cold-weather strategies. Retailers who sell winter clothing or snow shovels have had fewer customers this season. Plumbers who expected to fix frozen pipes have had less work, and people who make money removing snow have had idle equipment. On the flip side, better weather means more business for companies that cater to people who want to be outdoors. The period from December through February was the sixth-warmest winter on record, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the U.S. government agency that compiles statistics about the weather. The average January temperature in the lower 48 states, which excludes Alaska and Hawaii, was 33.

Today, I’ve seen the attention to detail, which makes me wonder whether he’s somewhat of a control freak, and if so, how this squares with a sport-cum-business like F1 that contains so many uncertainties. While I’m speculating, Wolff walks in with a smile that’s almost shy, and a word of apology for his very few minuteslateness. He sits co-operatively where asked by the photographer, and suddenly we’re talking as if we’d been doing it all morning. One of his secrets – he’ll tell me later – is very deliberately to do his best at everything, so he immediately impresses me by knowing something of our magazine, by understanding the hoped-for direction of our interview and by giving this encounter his full attention. No phones, no interruptions from the PA. We tune up on one of my hobby horses: F1’s Bernie Ecclestone -led tendency to take its fans for granted – and whether things will change now the sport has new owners and Ecclestone no longer controls its reins.

Use of Article 44 bypasses the interim legislature that was established after the army overthrew an elected government in 2014. "I understand the intention, that they want to address traffic safety,'' said Gothom Arya, a professor and social activist. "I don't agree with the use of Article 44. If they want to introduce new laws, they can talk to the National Legislative Assembly, who are always happy to cooperate, from what we've seen. Is this issue really so urgent and necessary? I don't see it.'' The assembly generally does whatever the ruling junta wants, often with some mild debate but not necessarily quickly. The new seat belt measure, which took effect Tuesday, enforces compliance by declaring that car owners who don't pay fines for failing to have their passengers use seat belts will not be able to register their vehicles for a year. Another decree, also published Tuesday, tightens regulations on vehicles used for public transport, such as commuter vans.
